In Reply to: Regional Advertising Fees? posted by mshan on December 22, 1998 at 17:04:42:
: Does this charge reflect an actual per-car cost to the dealer, or do the regional advertising organizations charge some lump sum fee irespective of the number or type of cars they sell?
I have been told that in some places this is a legitimate charge, but one of the dealers that I contacted tried to charge for it, and he doesn't have to pay it. No other dealer in the state charges it, and a dealer only 100 miles away doesn't charge it. It CAN be legitimate, and it CAN be bogus, check with more local dealers and see if they charge it. If not, something may be fishy..
